Welcome to the
Illinois Chapter Web site, our goal is to provide you information and
contacts to assist you in providing service. We are busy completing
preparation for this year’s 2012 Annual Chapter Conference in Peoria. We
have sent save the date cards out to all our members. My belief is if
you learn one new thing at a conference that helps your job, your
employer got their money's worth.
This year’s Illinois Public
Service Institute was held at Effingham on October 2nd through the 7th.
Ask anyone who has attended and you will be convinced it is a valuable
training session. The planning meeting was held in Plainfield November
21st and we believe that we are prepared to have another excellent
institute in 2012.
2013 is fast approaching and our friends in
the Chicago Metro Chapter will need volunteers as they host the National
APWA Congress. Check out their web site for more information as to how
you can help make this Congress event a success.
If you live in
Southern Illinois, consider joining our newest branch, The Shawnee
Branch will allow you to connect with other professional public Works
people in the area that will help improve your organization.
finish my term as your President, I want to thank all of the members
who have assisted me and to wish all of you good health and a prosperous
